Do you not like the Black Crowes to begin with? What year did you see them?

I'm surprised you and SHD have both mentioned them. I saw them in 2005 (I think), and they were incredible. Chris Robinson belted out every song like it was the last show he'd ever perform. Incredible energy and emotion from him on this particular night. The show was full of lengthy jams, and the whole band was as tight as I've ever heard them. Every band has had horrible shows, but I know the Black Crowes are capable of delivering a great live performance.

I think C. Robinson was sober by 2005. I saw them twice in the 1990's and both performances were sub-par. I wanted them to be good, but they were not. They were feuding brothers on dope not connecting with the songs.

It's funny. My brother and i just had a conversation about the Crowes and he said the same thing I did. As for me...I don't love them but I don't hate them. Was just looking to hear some good music. I just knew them from the songs that got airplay that I was familiar with and heard the guitar player was very good. Maybe it was just one of those nights but halfway through I was wishing I was in my car heading home.

Well what year did you seem 'em? Must have been an off-night, or maybe the music just doesn't grab you, or a combination of both. They were tight as hell and played their hearts out when I saw them.

Anybody see them with Jimmy Page? I did and had a blast.

I thought they did a respectable, if not incredible, job on the Zep stuff and the triple guitar onslaught was a blast on some of the Crowes material.

A long way from Mr. Crowes' Garden playing the mellow mushroom...
